    The FBI is investigating the University of Kansas' relationship with Adidas.

    Cultural appropriation?

  • Rhywun||

    I was trying to suss out from that article what the scandal is actually about, without much luck.

  • KDN||

    On Sept. 26, the FBI announced that four assistant basketball coaches from Arizona, Auburn, Oklahoma State and Southern California had been arrested on a slew of bribery and fraud charges related to the investigation into Adidas.

    The FBI is going to bring the pain to KU next, but they don't quite have the case sewn up.

  • KDN||

    If you're unfamiliar: the FBI decided to kick over a rock and notice the sleaze surrounding men's basketball recruiting at power 5 schools. Easy money for a prosecutor intent on making a name for himself.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    They didn't even kick over a rock - they arrested a financial advisor who was running a Ponzi scheme, and the financial advisor gave them the case. It was an easy investigation after that.

  • KDN||

    Or, a rock fell into their laps and begged them to look underneath. Regardless, the only thing surprising about this scandal is how pervasive it is (Auburn? Really? I don't think they've produced a first round pick in thirty years) and how brazen the perpetrators.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    brazen the perpetrators.

    Especially considering how many middle men they now use. It used to be the shoe companies to the coaches, and that was it. Now it's more like, the shoe companies to the AAU coaches who, with the shoe company's help steer the kids to the shoe company affiliated schools. But, there are so many hands in the current pot they were bound to get caught.

    Still don't see the federal crime here. If I take a golf resort vacation in return for recommending a vendor's product to my employer, I may be fired for breaking my employer's rules for purchasing agents, but did I commit a federal crime? If my employer chooses to overlook it, then what crime has been committed?

  • loveconstitution1789||

    Your company is not regulated like the NCAA.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    Still don't see the federal crime here.
    Here:

    Longtime Arizona assistant basketball coach Emanuel "Book" Richardson was released from federal custody on a $50,000 bond Tuesday following his arrest as part of a federal corruption scheme.

    Richardson appeared in U.S. District Court in Tucson on charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, solicitation of bribes by an agent of a federally funded organization, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, wire fraud conspiracy and travel act conspiracy.

    If convicted, Richardson is facing a maximum sentence of 60 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine, court officials said.
  • Crusty Juggler||

  • CE||

    So basically, no real crime.

  • colorblindkid||

    I don't know if it's just because of incompetence and the fact that he has no idea how things work, but so far Trump has actually used less actual government force to suppress information or intimidate the press. He just blabbers and says insane things and screams fake news, but it's not like he's actually shutting down papers or labeling journalists co-conspirators for espionage or wiretapping AP phone records. Is it an actual strategy by Trump? I doubt it. He probably does want to do all those things, but doesn't know how, and everybody around him would prevent it from happening anyway.

  • Horatio||

    The strategy is much like his predecessor: a never ending campaign. In Trump's case that means pointing out how awful the news is to him so his base doesn't look too hard at his day-to-day operations. So long as Trumpkins can say "look how mean everyone is to him!" then he's golden.

  • loveconstitution1789||

  • Citizen X - #6||

    Some of those later Hapsburgs were hard to look at.

  • Jerryskids||

    The deep water in that part of the Southern Ocean is warmer and saltier than the surface water. Ocean currents bring the warmer water upwards, where it melts the blankets of ice that had formed on the ocean's surface. That melting created the polynya.

    Since the hole continually exposes the water to the atmosphere above, it is difficult for new ice layers to form. When the warmer water cools, on contact with the frigid temperatures in the atmosphere, it sinks. Then it reheats in deeper areas, allowing the cycle to continue.

    Mystery solved!

  • BYODB||


    Known as a polynya, this year's hole was about 30,000 square miles at its largest, making it the biggest polynya observed in Antarctica's Weddell Sea since the 1970s.

    Former Senior Advisor to President Obama: What to Bring to the Gun Fight

    The interpretation of the Second Amendment that prevails on the far right today was reverse-engineered to pander to fantasists. If it takes hold nearly all gun regulations will eventually be overturned, and once Democrats resign themselves to that interpretation, the fight will be over. That's not what the Second Amendment imagines, and it is clearly not what the founders intended, but it is where the political fight over guns is taking us. (As an aside, what the founders likely did intend has become outmoded. The Second Amendment is in many ways an anachronism, framed before the age of drones and cruise missiles, when a well-armed civilian militia have actually been capable of turning back a foreign invasion. Times change. This is not Red Dawn. You are not Patrick Swayze. Chill out.)

    The entire piece is almost worse than Palin's Buttplug.

  • Unlabelable MJGreen||

    This is why the US swiftly pacified Afghanistan and Iraq. Drones and cruise missiles destroy all resistance.

  • BYODB||

    Not to mention that American's are much more likely to realize that a drone can simply be jammed which basically 'kills' the pilot. Oops.

    My understanding is that when this happens they autopilot back to a base, but they won't be shooting any missiles in such a scenario. It's why we only use them on goat herders.

    Tiny, Transparent Worm Challenges Notions About Sex

    Abstinence may have found its most impressive poster child yet: Diploscapter pachys. The tiny worm is transparent, smaller than a poppy seed and hasn't had sex in 18 million years.

    It's basically just been cloning itself this whole time. Usually, that's a solid strategy for going extinct, fast. What's its secret?

    "Scientists have been trying to understand how some animals can survive for millions of years without sex, because such strict, long-term abstinence is very rare in the animal world," says David Fitch, a biologist at New York University. Most plants and animals use sex to reproduce.

    As he and his colleagues report in the recent issue of Current Biology, this seemingly unimpressive roundworm seems to have developed a different way of copying its genes — one that leads to just enough mutations to give the worms room to adapt, but not enough to cause crippling defects.

    It's going to be a doll-fucking future.

    Foiled in Congress, Trump Moves on His Own to Undermine Obamacare

    President Trump, after failing to repeal the Affordable Care Act in Congress, will act on his own to relax health care standards on small businesses that band together to buy health insurance and may take steps to allow the sale of other health plans that skirt the health law's requirements.

    The president plans to sign an executive order "to promote health care choice and competition" on Thursday at a White House event attended by small-business owners and others.

    Interesting. I aim to believe that his administration is too inept to actually accomplish something like this. Also, now he can't blame Congress for when something goes wrong.

    Media strategy 101 since Nov. 6, 2016....

  • Crusty Juggler||

    I'm re-posting this: How Top NBC Executives Quashed The Bombshell Harvey Weinstein Story

    interviews with 12 people inside and outside NBC News with direct knowledge of the reporting behind Farrow's story suggest a different cause of death. All of the sources who spoke to HuffPost asked not to be named, either because they weren't authorized to speak to the media about the story or because they were fearful of retribution from NBC News executives. These sources detailed a months-long struggle within NBC News during which Oppenheim and other executives slow-walked Farrow's story, crippling it with their qualms and irresolution.

    Mia Farrow's creepy-looking son has a sac his maybe father Frank Sinatra would be proud of.

  • Crusty Juggler||

    Toward the end, the concerns seemed to take on a personal tone, and it became difficult to tell where the Weinstein team's attempts to discredit the story left off and NBC News' editorial forbearance began. According to multiple sources inside and outside of NBC News who worked on the aborted story, Oppenheim related to Farrow what Weinstein's lawyers had said in complaint to NBC: that Farrow had a conflict of interest because Weinstein had helped revive the career of Farrow's estranged father, director Woody Allen. Weinstein's representatives would later use a similar line of attack when the story landed at The New Yorker. The magazine, known for its rigorous vetting process, saw no conflict of interest.
  • John||

    The fact that he turned out to have some balls leaves no doubt that Sinatra must be his father.

  • Red Rocks White Privilege||

    I love that he threw them under the bus and Maddow helped him do it.

    Ideally, given that everyone important is abandoning him, I'm hoping Weinstein completely loses his shit and promises the Feds that he'll give up the dirt on every rapist and pedophile in the business that he knows in exchange for some form of immunity. It would be poetic justice that Hollywood's perverse toxic culture of virtue-signaling and moral degeneracy was brought down by one of its own as a final "fuck you" to everyone who wouldn't stay loyal.
